  1. Thank you. Great. Thanks. I thought so but wanted to be sure if I used mine his would not be honored.
  2. I had to cancel a cruise and received a 150.00 fcc for my husband and 150.00 for myself. They came in the same email. They have different numbers. I have a girls cruise coming up and want to use it for that. Can we do that or do we both have to use them at the same time for the same cruise?
  3. I hear you. I couldn’t book in August and turns out my daughter changed her plans and we could have went before she went back to school. I am hoping that some of those “deals” will show up as well.
  4. The last week was extended through Friday. The last time I saw the extended sale it didn’t update to the new sale until Monday.
  5. Another vote for side facing. The aft ones did tend to get loud when you were on the balcony, also there is little or no breeze on the balcony.
  6. I also have been on all three cruises. The first was fun, the second one incredible, the third one where I was in a Star Class suite not so much. I had booked for this year and paid over 1000 more for a grand suite versus the Star Class suite. The one last year had a lot of visa sponsored events as they were a sponsor of one of the concerts. Labadee suite beach was overrun with people both suites and pinnacles, Ck was overrun with suite people and pinnacles. IMHO the premium is not worth. I had to our cancel due to some medical issues with my father and daughter that would not be resolved before final payment. If things get resolved and the suites come down I would re book.
  7. My husband and normally sail in Royal suites including several Star Class sailings. We took our first Celebrity to Alaska in May on the Millennium. The suite experience was far above any experience we have had on Royal including the Star sailings. We are planning many more!
  8. Here is the obstruction borrowed from another post.
  9. Thank you for your time doing this review. It is one of my bucket list cruises.
  10. They have changed that for now. On the 2nd President's Cruise, I sat down with an IT guy with my list of issues for the website. One of them was the inability to price out the A1/A2/RFS etc that hold more than four guests with out the painful process of calling . After the cruise he communicated with me that they were able to take off that restriction and they would be visible on the website/ta site without having to call. I have been able to get pricing for these suites using non royal sites that I use to check them allow for you to check, the royal site shows it as available but when you try to click on it it says not available. You still have to call to book though.
  11. That's great. I have a family of five and we could never get 5 in a GS when the kids were younger.
  12. Just curious, how could you get 5 in a GS? I thought capacity was at 4. Have a great trip!
  13. I was just coming to post this! It looks like there is a surprise every Saturday lately! My problem is I book a cruise a particular week and poof a better one pops up later. Looking at Delta skymiles and they are having some great last minute deals to Europe but they interfere with my current "deal" cruises.
  14. We asked for some when 4 ladies shared the 2 bedroom GS and was promptly told no. I guess there is better luck on 17 since they have access. Good to know!
  15. The gs are still higher then when we booked on the last Presidents Cruise. Final payment is coming up quickly. I am thinking of downgrading to a balcony due to the premium of the cost of suites i. I. could save a lot of money.
  16. I was in a cruise with the person you are describing and had the unfortunate experience of sitting next to her at her table. I thought it was just out group of ladies. Nice to know it wasn’t.
  17. No. I was in the last one and knew a couple that could not get reservations. I was Star Class and asked to eat and the hostess said they are full and had no open seats that evening. This was in the afternoon. His co worker said they are Star Class. The hostess looked horrified and stressed as he did not know where he was going to put us since the Star Class table was taken. I said no worries I would stick to my original dinner plans.
  18. So I have a GS booked on the President's cruise and am thinking of cancelling . I have never cancelled anything since the non ref deposits took effect. I have 500.00 deposit total, so if I cancel I will get charged/penalized 200.00 and get 300.00 back in the form of a FCC? How long does the fcc take to be posted to your account to use?
  19. Just curious what you ask for ?
  20. I had booked a Js after final payment. Totally happy with a Js. I paid got off the phone with the ta. Within 5 minutes they called back and said no js were available. They had contacted Rc and said the room had been double booked. In the end they upgraded us to a grand suite. If they don’t give your rooms back ask for an upgrade if you can be closer together. It is nice having the balconies opened.
  21. Since they changed the Royal up program where you can bid without an invitation email via the website, do TA's get notified via email as well if you have been successful?
  22. I have seen them on the Rising tide bar during a non promenade party. I bet you could get them put on the Schooner Bar if you asked nicely.
  23. Just looked at Independence for Jan 2020 and it is not available. Regular price
  24. Have you ever seen that code before? It it seems to be working. They are getting scooped up.
